how far off is the trans from bolting up?
This is a long shot but may be an alternative to the specialized bell housing. This Wikipedia site indicates that the Duratec is a MZR family engine: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duratec Another Wikipedia site sayes the MZR engine came in the Mazda MX-5 (third generation Miata, 2006 to present) which I believe is still rear wheel drive: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mazda_MZR_engine#DuratecThis thread seems to indicate they are the same engine: http://www.good-win-racing.com/mazda-talk/viewtopic.php?t=795&highlight=mzrIf the above is correct, the Miata shifter should be in a better location. Unfortunately finding that late a model car in the junk yard probably will be difficult and expensive.
What's the other one?Do they need to be thawed out coming from the great frigid north?
So you are going to that *two* parts that are more expensive than that welded pan now.... :laugh:
Take it that you can't find a Miata with tranny in the junk yard.
BTW, don't know if this helps but: http://shop.ebay.com/items/_W0QQ_fromZR46QQ_sopZ10?_nkw=miata+transmission&_fromfsb=0&_trksid=m270.l1311
